Great background for Austen

by lostqueenutah on Nov 28, 2013

This is helpful to dip into while reading any 19th century British novel.

Sabra   M

Excellent overview of the time period

by Sabra M on Oct 23, 2011

This book is a very good "primer" in helping to enjoy Bronte's and Austens books etc. even more.

Mishka

I loved taking a peek into the past!

by Mishka on Mar 10, 2011

I really enjoyed this book if you like the 18th and early 19th century get this book.

Rosanne

A great resource

by Rosanne on Jul 6, 2007

I found this book overwhelmingly helpful for understanding the obscure terms (especially about currency), customs and other references in Regency and Victorian literature. I find the author to be a bit snarky on the subject of English Christianity, but on the whole an excellent reference. There is much cultural discussion and a very thorough glossary of terms. Essential for students, and handy for those who simply read for pleasure, this will definitely add to your understanding and enjoyment of the works of those periods.

A very informative book for those who need help understanding everyday life in the books of this era. References to literature from the Regency up to the Victorian eras, as well as the lives and events of various authors from these times are mentioneded and described in detail. A very good refernce for students, as well as fans of books from these eras.
